Take time.....


What an AMAZING stamp created by Yvonne Blair Designs!!!
I DID start this project with a class in mind....
when it wasn't turning out how I had envisioned it
....I let the creative process have it's way.

I had begun with applying Multi Medium to a canvas
then I spritzed a page from a
1973-1974 McCall's Needlework and Crafts Magazine
and squinched it into the Multi Medium.
I dried it with my heat tool then applied a layer of
Perfect Paints ~ Pearl Plaster ~ Bavarian Cream.
It wasn't the look I was looking for so I began to randomly
tear off the magazine page....
This is when I fell in LOVE
with what happened!
(sorry I wish I had a picture for you)

I then pulled out Perfect Paints ~ White Stucco
and randomly applied it to the canvas with a palette knife.
and applied it all over the canvas.
I waited a minute then wiped off the excess with a baby wipe.
I LOVED how this worked as it "stuck" to the
White Stucco but not to the Pearl Plaster.

I had created a Perfect Paints Shimmering Matte Acrylic Spray
by mixing equal parts of Bright Gold and Aged Copper
with an equal part of water.
I spritzed it on my canvas and let it drip.....
I wasn't quite happy so I stenciled a bit of
Perfect Paints ~ Shimmering Matte Acrylic ~ Shadow
through The Crafter's Workshop stencil ~ Thoughts!

I used a lot of "misfits" to finish off my canvas.
A previously stenciled and spritzed
A leftover torn piece of CCB C Flute ~ Kraft
that I used to sop up leftover paint.
I scrap piece of vintage lace.

All tied up with a piece of Jute and
finished off with Yvonne Blair Designs stamp.

Now to get back to creating the background for my
upcoming class......
